...NEWS NEWS NEWS...
Firstly just to let you know that my website is now more mobile phone friendly. You'll be able to see all new work being launched although the full site
will be accessible on your tablet or PC.
Want to see work in progress and the inspiration behind the art? You can keep up with my regular progress pics. Follow me on Instagram at stuartduffin.artist.
"Still Dreaming of Jerusalem", my audio-visual collaboration with composer Malcolm Lindsay and lens based artist Melanie Sims is now up on the web. Described as "beautifully haunting", it is superbly choreographed and edited by Melanie using stills and moving visuals that I made during my residencies in Jerusalem with specially composed string orchestra music by Malcolm and recorded by the Brno Philharmonic in the Czech Republic.
The International Mezzotint Festival (IMF) ran a short on-line illustrated feature of my work in December. The festival, the only one of its kind solely dedicated to mezzotint is a truly spectacular biennale held in Yekaterinburg, Russia.
See it here (English and Russian).
In January I was invited to present a Zoom talk about my early
Jerusalem Print Workshop residencies and the resulting work from 1996 onwards. It was the first in a new series of on-line lectures for the
Scottish Council of Jewish Communities here in...well, Scotland I guess.
If you'd like, you can see it here.
I'm also chuffed to be included as a mentor for Mezzotint Printmakers International. Of course anyone can ask me anything about all things mezzotint and etching and I'll be only too happy to help where I can.
Just email me.
Til next time, stay safe and stay well
p.s. don't forget to have a look at the new work...it's kinda topical!
